The DOD needs to take advantage of existing technologies to operate in virtual teams. This will eliminate the labor and high costs associated with a lot of the unneccessary travel that is currently happening. Also, it ensures the right people are on the team, rather than restricted to local personnel. This can make for more efficient and effective work. There are plenty of tools such as video teleconferencing, web meetings and web-based communities and document sharing for effective virtual teamwork.
